Smooth Federation: an instrumental jazz tribute album featuring covers of Star Trek music by Andrew Allen and Coverville Records.

Album Highlight Reel: the album highlights can be found here, so you know what your buying. LLAP

Performed by the talented Andrew Allen, Smooth Federation is a brand new CD featuring covers of Star Trek music (from all the T.V. shows & movies - including the new reboot) done in a jazz style. Perfect for Star Trek fans, jazz music lovers, and even folks who just want some cool background music for dinner parties and get togethers. (Put this CD on, and you'll see who the real trekkies/trekkers are!)

The CD features custom art by MyExtraLife.com's Scott Johnson, and is produced by Coverville Media - and will be the first CD released on the Coverville Records label!

The music has been recorded, but now we need your help to get the tracks mastered and licensed, artwork for the CD finished, and production & shipping. And whether you want to contribute a little or a lot, I'm sure you'll find a reward package on the right side of this page to engage your warp drives, if you know what I mean. (Yikes. Sorry.)

FrogPants fans - the CD also features a guest appearance by the voice of FrogPants Media, Scott Fletcher, and if you're going to be attending Nerdtacular in June 2012, we'll deliver your CD in person so you can get it signed by the whole crew!

Thanks for your support, and I promise not to make another bad Star Trek pun.

Brian Ibbott
Host, Coverville Media

FAQ

  • Right now, we're estimating about $5 for international shipping of the CD. For the poster tube and/or t-shirt, it'll be higher. We're estimating between $11-13. We'll contact any international donors after the Kickstarter has ended to let them know how much extra the international shipping will be.
